The Metropolitan’s St Patrick’s Day Message


Holy and Righteous St Patrick bless you all and pray to God for us! I am filled with joy to share in your happiness on this holy day for all Ireland. Our beloved faith and our One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church came to these Islands through these remarkable monks and Saints in the very earliest centuries. Ireland’s ancient Church is the Orthodox Church. Your heritage and tradition is fulfilled and the fullness of Christ’s grace and love for you all is revealed in your Saints. Now I pray that you may also live as they did because we are a Church of miracles and Saints and from you must come the Saints of this age for Ireland.
